We've all felt like there are some people in our lives who drain us dry. Even Jesus experienced people who drained him. So how did he deal with these people? And how can that inform our own dealing with these types of people? Shaun Blakeney and Wallace Henley serve on the pastoral staffs of two of the largest churches in America and they've dealt with their share of draining people. In Energy Zappers they show readers how to show love to more than twenty different kinds of drainers. With humor and pointed insight, Blakeney and Henley assist readers in developing relationships and seeing others more positively. Perfect for pastors, church leaders, and anyone who deals with people!
