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.

The Evangelical Library


The Librarian is away and so I've spent a couple of days at the Library in Bounds Green. It's been very quiet as far as visitors are concerned though the email, snail mail and telephone messages trickle in and at least I've been able to get more of an idea of how the place is run. Do note that I'll be giving alunch time lecture there on Monday, September 19 at 1 pm. Subject: James Harvey "Suffolk lad to London merchant".
