This book is dated but unfortunately it is the only wide ranging one that I know of from an evangelical perspective. You will find more recent treatments of specific cases but this is the only comprehensive one I know of. Grenz sometimes reflects his time, some twenty years ago, and still beats the "community" mantra to death, but aside from the fact that this is out of date, it's still worth a read.

Stanley James Grenz was born in Alpena, Michigan on January 7, 1950. He was the youngest of three children born to Richard and Clara Grenz, a brother to Lyle and Jan.
