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.

May 2018 update. Since I wrote this Jerry Lewis, Richard Adams, Billy Graham and Zsa Zsa Gabor have all died (August 2017, Decemebr 2016, February 2018, December 2016). To keep the tema at 10 perhaps we can substitute Joan Fontaine, Maureen O'Hara, Prince Philip and Stan Lee (all 95-100 years old). Remarkably Fontaine is sister is the younger sister of Olivia de Havilland.
