The similar phrase 'Worldly Christianity' is one used by Bonhoeffer. 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.

Christmas Books 2015

It was nice to get books for Christmas. They included
Slightly foxed: the real reader's quarterly No 48; Revolver: How the Beatles Re-Imagined Rock 'n' Roll by Robert Rodriguez; The Big Bang Theory Trivia Quiz Book; Round the Christmas Fire: Festive Stories (Vintage Classics) and London Stories in the Everyman's Pocket Classics series. no Christian books there. I'm buying those all the time and so people tend not to get me them as Christmas presents.
