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.

Banner UK 2017 Session 9 Stephen Clark


In his second section Stephen Clark made a number of points on the subject of the Scriptures witness to Christ.
These were his main points
1. Biblical revelation is progressive in nature
2. Christ is presented in different ways in different Scriptures
Here we had some helpful material on types,looking at Joseph, Moses, Job and Psalm 22. Also the Son of God theme, pointing out that the phrase means different things in different contexts.
He commended Cunningham's Historical Theology and its treatment of eternal sonship.
3. The way Scripture testifies to the offices of Christ
This was a fine and helpful presentation.
