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.

What's the Welsh for banana?

Ffrwchnedd (although I should warn you that the word is probably designed simply to answer that question when asked. The Welsh say banana like everyone else.)
