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.

And so very quickly it seems we have come to the last day of the conference. First up today was Jeremy Walker who took us to 1 Corinthians 15 to speak on the resurrection and the security and hope of the church. He spoke about the vital importance of the fact of the resurection. If it is not so then preaching is pointless and so is faith. Because it is so, our resurrection is guaranteed. This is not only a promise but the setting of a pattern. He sought to encourage us to preach Christ.
