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.


I sometimes get hooked on a song. Currently it's the subtle and mesmerising post-Akkerman track Mobilea by the Dutch band Brainbox. Here is a live version from last year featuring Rudy de Queljoue and Jan Schuursma on guitars with the world's greatest drummer Pierre Van Der Linden. Singer Kaz Lux makes the introduction.
