1989 to present Various Human Sexuality and the Anglican Church
Rowan Williams wrote in 1989 an essay (originally a lecture) entitled "The Body's Grace" which explored certain aspects of Human sexuality (both Hetereo- and homo-sexuality). I found his original essay a good read and the other essays here, which discuss and critique his view give a good perspective in realising the complexity of the matter.
These essays are all in PDF format.
