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.

It seemed to go off okay. It's a little naughty the way it's done - things missing, one thing added, first and last hymns swapped, etc. I'm sure they have slowed down Don Carson just a notch. It inevitably comes over slightly stilted. Lloyd-Jones must be turning in his grave. You can see a transcript here and it will be on iplayer soon.

Hi Gary,

Had a listen while working in the study this morning. I thought it came across really well. So refreshing to hear such overtly evangelical content on the BBC.
