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 Middle Names of 19th and 20th Century Reformed Theologians

This was suggested by a friend recently. Thanks for the idea. You can do this as a quiz if you are so inclined.

1. Breckinridge 1851-1921
2. Dick 1856-1930
3. Wistar 1870-1937
4. Henley 1812-1862
5. Petigru 1827-1888
6. Walkington 1886-1952
7. Williamson 1803-1886
8. Bouke 1886-1966
9. Grey 1895-1960
10. Joseph 1907-1968

(Benjamin B Warfield, Robert D Wilson, Caspar W Hodge, James H Thornwell, James P Boyce,
Arthur W Pink, John W Nevin, Rienk B Kuiper, Donald G Barnhouse,  Edward J Young,)
(Aidan Wilson Tozer, John Albert Broadus and Robert Lewis Dabney just missed the cut. J Gresham Machen always used his middle name so is not such a good example.)
