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.

Bible Concordances

In the days before modern translations there were three recommended Bible concordances. These usually hefty times were compiled by
Alexander Cruden whose complete concordance first  appeared in 1761
Robert Young whose analytical concordance first appeared in 1879
Dr James Strong whose exhaustive concordance first appeared in 1890.
Some wag said that Strongs was for strong'uns and Young for young'uns ... and then there is also Crudens.
