The aim of this research is to understand formation in relation to training for ordination to the priesthood in the Church of England through the identification of metaphors employed by those in initial ministerial education and a comparison of those metaphors with ones found in the Bible and literature of theological education. The ultimate aim is to define 'formation' in this context.
