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.

Protestant Anniversaries

Today is the anniversary of the Great Ejection of 1662, the day by which ministers unwilling to conform to the Act of Uniformity were required to vacate their churches. The term Black Bartholomew's Day is often used as that was the so called saint's day. See my blog on the subject here. The book on the subject is still available.
It is a double anniversary as this is also the anniversary of the massacre of Protestants in Paris in 1572 known as the St Bartholomew's Day massacre. See the Wikipedia article here.
