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.

Carey Conference 2012 05

The second session of the morning was a little different in that Lewis Allen described the church planting work he has been involved with in Huddersfield over the last 18 months or so. Quite humbly and helpfully he described what has happened and the things he has taught and laid down at this beginning point. What a wise and inspiring fellow. I liked that phrase "the holy inconvenience of the Lord's Day".
