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.

The Top 10 novels on Abebooks since 2000

1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
2. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
3. Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
4. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
5. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
6. Night by Elie Wiesel
7. Lord of the Flies by William Golding
8. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
9. Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell
10. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
 (Next come Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury)
I've read 1, 2, 7, 9 and 10 plus Fahrenheit 451, all worth the effort, and would like to read the other non-Potter ones. I've missed out three non-novels from the original list of 100 here)
