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.

CYSK 01 John Eliot

We will continue with our novelists but I thought we might usefully also have one on Christians you should know (a title stolen from a little book for children by Ruth Johnson Jay that came out in the seventies).
01 John Eliot (c 1604 – 1690) was a Puritan missionary to the American Indians. His efforts earned him the designation “the apostle to the Indians.” He was responsible for the first Bible to be printed in America (in Algonquin). More here.
