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 2013 05

Our second session today was led by David Skull and was on The call to holiness in a hostile society. Focusing on 1 Peter 1:14-16 but drawing on verses throughout the letter, he gave a clear well thought through call to progressive sanctification.
