Bonhoeffer uses a similar phrase 'worldly Christianity'. It's J Gresham Machen that I want to line up most closely with. See his Christianity and culture here. Having done commentaries on Proverbs (Heavenly Wisdom) and Song of Songs (Heavenly Love), a matching title for Ecclesiastes would be Heavenly Worldliness. For my stance on worldliness, see 3 posts here.

Bonus Tracks

For good or for ill we live in the age of the bonus track. Literally thousands and thousands of CDs have been released and more often re-released with bonus tracks in different years. Bonus tracks are extra tracks added to an album for the interest of the die hard fan and are often enough to get im to shell out once more for something he has bought once, twice or even more times before. The trouble is that in most cases once they have been heard once most bonus tracks are of little interest to most people. Here we simply seek to list the most common categories that these tracks fall into.
1. Live versions of songs
2. Single or Radio edits
3. Remixes
4. Demos
5. Acapella or Acoustic versions
6. Extended or edited versions sometimes from US or Japanese Albums
7. Alternative Mono or Stereo versions
8. Unreleased studio versions of unreleased songs
9. Studio run throughs or rehearsal versions
10. Other alternative versions or mixes of previously released songs
(Sixpence none the richer and may be others have released material performed in different keys)
