Christian Missionaries

What should you do with a Torah given to you by a Christian missionary?

B”H
What happens when a Christian missionary starts to talk to you and is handing you a Bible. This Bible, as they call it, also includes the Jewish Torah and not only the New Testament. And in the Jewish Torah, the Names of G – d appear. Halacha states that we cannot just throw something away when it has the names of G – d on it.
Any religious Christian book, even containing the names of G – d, must be thrown into the garbage. This also includes a Torah, as this Torah is considered to be written by idol – worshipers. Thus, you are allowed to dump it into any trash can.
