Abstract and Keywords

Although the reporting of Anglican Communion and sexuality has been disproportionate and often ill-informed, debates about sexuality, including homosexuality, have been and will remain a major area of crisis and controversy, continuing to make an impact on the unity and structural development of the Communion and worldwide Anglicanism for several years. This chapter explores the range of political and cultural factors, especially the impact of globalization, which have increasingly divided the Anglican Communion, particularly the Lambeth Conference, over the subject of sexuality. It highlights that the current crisis will not be resolved until deeper theological issues, particularly in relation to the Bible, are more fully addressed by Anglicans as has been attempted in the Anglican Covenant.

Keywords: Anglican Communion, sexuality, homosexuality, globalization, Lambeth Conference, Anglican Covenant
