An Emotional Relationship

From J.I. Packer’s CLASSIC – Knowing God:

Knowing God is a matter of personal dealing….  Knowing God is more than knowing about him; it is a matter of dealing with him as he opens up to you, and being dealt with by him….  Friends… open their hearts to each other by what they say and do….  We must not lose sight of the fact that knowing God is an emotional relationship, as well as an intellectual and volitional one, and could not indeed be a deep relationship between persons if it were not so.

Who said that meaty doctrine has to lead to dry, dead, intellectual, stuffy, heady religion??!
