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.

Another Geography list

1. D'you know Alaska's Near Islands in the Aleutians are closer to Tokyo, Japan, than they are to Alaska's state capital of Juneau
2. Southernmost Algeria is farther from Algiers than is London, England
3. The distance from Petropavlovsk, in easternmost Russia, to Moscow is about the same distance as from Petropavlovsk to Denver, Colorado
4. The Atlantic end of the Panama Canal is west of the Pacific end
5. Recife, Brazil, is closer to the African cities of Dakar (Senegal), Freetown (Sierra Leone) and Monrovia (Liberia), than it is to Cruzeiro do Sul in western Brazil
6. It's only 49 miles (79 km) from Talinn, the capital of Estonia, to Helsinki, the capital of Finland. Estonia and Finland nonetheless have no common land border, thanks to the Gulf of Finland
7. The Pacific is more than half again as large as the Atlantic, but the Atlantic drains three and a half times as much land area as the Pacific
8. Venice is west of Rome
9. Alaska's Near Islands in the Aleutians are west of Auckland and Wellington, New Zealand
10. New York City is west of Lima, Peru
