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.

Chaucer's Yong Squier

Chaucer's yong Squier ... 
Syngynge he was, or floytynge, al the day,
He was as fressh as is the monthe of May.
(I had this idea when I was in college - explains a lot)
