This study aims to examine the possible ways prison chaplains and ex-prisoners, conversion narratives and the resultant effects on ones identity have been explored. The data suggests that identity is a complex concept, heavily dependent on context, and reiterated through relational others to form specific identity narratives.

Whilst the performance of religious identity is evident, this is not limited to prisoners, with results showing that prisoners also expect a degree of religious performance from chaplains. Although concepts of religion and faith are often used interchangeably, it is important to distinguish between these two ambiguous phenomena, and take not of their intersectional characteristics. This research contributes to our own understanding of prisoners experiences within prison, and provides a fuller picture of the value of chaplains roles in the process of supporting prisoners in positive identity-formation.
