I've been debating with a scientist/Christian friend recently. He says that, while God is evidently more than just a 'man', we should still think of Him in terms of being a man/king/ruler because these are the metaphors given to us in the Bible. He rejects the notion that joy is a part of God's being, does not agree with the idea of God being 'infinite' (as this, in his mind, would mean He was everything, including the Devil!) and thinks the idea of a beatific vision can't be so as it isn't backed up by the scriptures. He is a legit Christian and practices his faith earnestly. So do those who follow the ideas that he decried. Question is, where do these traditions he didn't like belong? (For the record, I agree with them).
At the risk of creating a debate, I shall point our some places where I believe your scientists/Christian friend has a misunderstanding.
Concerning the metaphors: The Bible does indeed use the metaphors of king and ruler, because they convey important things about aspects of God. They shouldn't be taken to imply that he is of the same nature as Man because of that, any more than we should infer that God actually holds a real sword. There are plenty of places where the Bible also describes God as infinite.
Philosophically and mathematically your friend has also made a mistake. Because something is infinite does not mean it is all-encompassing. For example, the set of whole numbers is infinite - i.e. has no limit. However there are numbers that are not whole numbers. The whole numbers are infinite but not all-encompassing.
Whether or not joy is an attribute of God, it is certainly an attribute of those around him.
So to actually answer your question, no Christian traditions that I am aware of espouse these views
