The knowledge of Christ

Whilst re-reading an excellent essay on Old Princeton I came across this superb quotation from Charles Hodge:
"The knowledge of Christ," he argued, "...is not the apprehension of what he is, simply by the intellect, but also a due apprehension of his glory as a divine person arrayed in our nature, and involves not as its consequence merely, but as one of its elements, the corresponding feeling of adoration, delight, desire and complacency."
From Paul Kjoss Helseth "Are Postconservative Evangelicals Fundamentalists? Postconservative Evangelicalism, Old Princeton, and the Rise of Neo-Fundamentalism" in Erickson, Helseth and Taylor [eds], Reclaiming the Center: Confronting Evangelical Accommodation in Postmodern Times, p. 233
