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 December 14 2014

It's the Christmas season here in Childs Hill and so in the morning we looked in the morning at eight reasons why we can say Jesus came in the fullness of time and in the evening at the prophecy at the very end of the Old Testament, in Haggai 4, that the sun of righteousness would rise with healing in its wings. We had tea together before the evening service and that was very well attended, which was nice. Some of us also nipped over to the flat of one of our more elderly members to get his flat ready foir new carpets the next day.
