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.

10 words you don't hear so much these days

1. Training shoes (Trainers)
2. Continental quilt (Duvet)
3. Discotheque (Disco)
4. Pictures (as in I'm going to the ... Movies)
5. Hark (as in "hark at that guitar playing" - Listen)
6. Duffle bag (what people put things in before the holdall or sportsbag)
7. Snazzy (as in that's a snazzy bowtie - Stylish?)
8. Fuddy duddy (if you use the phrase you probably are it)
9. Wireless (ie a radio)
10. Radiogram (here the radio is combined  with a record player or gramophone)
