The similar phrase 'Worldly Christianity' is one used by Bonhoeffer. 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.

Another excellent Library Lecture

It is three years since we had Lesley Rowe come speak at the Evangelical Library on the Puritan Arthur Hildersham. It was good to have her there again speaking on Hildersham and the 1625 National Fast in light of the plague in London that year. She helpfully gave the historical background before drawing attention to Hildersham and the eight sermons he preached at that time which have been reprinted in recent times through Mrs Rowe's own efforts.
The final lecture of this series will be on December 4 when Dr Ian Densham will speak on The Greatness of God.
