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.

Lord's Day May 27 2013

There were quite a few away yesterday mainly because we are coming up to half term. We also had visitors, however, especially in the evening when some involved in the Christian Answer weekend based down in West Kilburn and others joined us. Our South African friend was back and we got a little more of his story and that was a blessing itself. I carried on with 1 Corinthians 4 in the morning and Numbers (33:50-34:29) at night. So we were on being fools for Christ and so on in the morning and living the Christian life in the evening. I suggested that just as Canaan had boundaries so the Christian life does too - grace, law, love and lifespan.
