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.

Oh for a human being!

I don't want to keep bringing these examples before people but sometimes they are so stupid it is unbelievable. So much for the intelligence of computers. Is there an explanation?

It may be that one of the people who bought the Bible also looked at the maths book. The automated analytics engine makes the simple link and then recommends the maths book to all who have purchased or browsed the Bible.

Perhaps it has linked a book on the KJV and Orthogonal Polynomials because it perceives that both texts might be difficult for ordinary readers to understand?

Said with tongue firmly in cheek by the way!

I'm going with the first suggestion although I see where you're coming from, Andrew.
