I have finally figured out why Van Til is so hard for so many people to read: it's stream of consciousness. You have to realize he is going to drop about 30 bombs all at once and if you keep them in a larger perspective, then the narrative, such as it is, makes sense.

He evaluates G.C. Berkouwer's later works. But before he does that, he outlines his own basic approach: see a variety of Greek, Medieval, and Kantian streams and syntheses. He then places Berkouwer's later works on that framework.

I've imbibed some Van Til in the past, but this was a hard row to hoe. Even so, one can get a sense of Berkouwer's (and Barth's) reliance on existential and Kantian philosophy.
